The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) concluded, on May 4, 2018, a re-investigation of the normal values and export prices of certain concrete reinforcing bar (rebar) originating in or exported from China, the Republic of Korea and Turkey (Rebar 1), and originating in or exported from Belarus, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, Portugal and Spain (Rebar 2), and the amounts of subsidy of certain rebar originating in or exported from China.
The re-investigation was initiated on December 4, 2017, as part of the CBSA’s ongoing enforcement of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s finding of a threat of injury issued on January 9, 2015 (Rebar 1) and the Tribunal’s finding of injury issued on May 3, 2017 (Rebar 2).
The changes to the normal values, export prices and amounts of subsidy, a complete product definition of the subject goods as well as the dates of enforcement, are detailed in the CBSA’s Notice of Conclusion of Re-Investigation.
In its Notice the CBSA reminds importers that it is their responsibility to calculate and declare their anti-dumping and/or countervailing duty liability. When importers are using the services of a customs broker to clear importations, the brokerage firm should be advised that the goods are subject to anti-dumping and/or countervailing measures and be provided with sufficient information necessary to clear the shipments.
